Wind Farm Proposals for Westwood Park and Hunshelf Bank

I believe we are all committed to increasing the amount of energy provided by wind power. However, does this mean the proposals to look at Westwood Park as a possible location is good idea? To help me answer this this I would like your input.

Also, a feasibility study is being completed on a possible Wind Farm on Hunshelf Bank on the Barnsley boarder. These turbines would, if they are approved overlook Stocksbridge, therefore it is also important people in the town make their views known regarding these proposals.
